Beautiful Painted Wardrobe


I took a break from painting for a client to paint... Makes sense right?? This beautiful wardrobe has a sister waiting in the wings... But I started with her. I typically will strip the paint before starting a project but I decided that since she wasn't chipping I would just lightly sand the areas needed and go with it. Let the piece keep it's story. I wasn't going for a perfected new finish but rather keeping of her age. She's painted in Benjamin Moore's Spring Sky which is a beautiful tiffany blue color. I also painted and stenciled the inside.

I think she'd be a wonderful addition to a nursery, guest room, bath or even an entry!!She is 7ft tall x 3ft wide x 20" deep.
